WE NEED HELP!

CAN-DO shines in Mississippi!
On 3/9/2006, CAN-DO attended the Governor’s Long Term Recovery Meeting in Gulfport, Mississippi. We were personally invited by the Governor of Mississippi and First Lady to to present our proposal on Community Revitalization Centers (CRCs). While representing CAN-DO, I had the opportunity to meet personally with Governor Haley Barbour.

We are proud to announce that the CAN-DO proposal for Community Revitalization Centers is now being used as a model by the state of Mississippi. Read more

UPDATE FROM EK & COZ

On the Jan 12th Cosmo and EK traveled to Iowa to pick up an RV to drive down to a family in Buras, LA. Lisa and Michael H. from Cedar Rapids generously donated the RV. We first arrived in St.Bernard’s Parish on Jan 14th to team up with Mark Weiner, Emergency Communities. Emergency Communities is an amazing organization that formed after Katrina to first provide food to the survivors of one of the most devastated areas, New Orleans’s 9th Ward. Emergency Communities opened their “Made With Love Cafe and Grill” on December 2nd and does more than just simply serve food. Read more

HEADING BACK...

On Jan. 12th we will be back on the Gulf Coast continuing our relief efforts. We are also updating the site and want to thank everybody for their support. We would also like to give a special shout out to everyone who participated in the fundraising event, “Benefit the Bayou”, organized by Cosmo Pfeil in NY last month. The event was a great success and we are grateful for everyone’s participation and generosity. Read more

A PLEA FROM THE FISHERMEN OF SOUTH LA.

While working in Southern Louisiana, we had the privilege of meeting and working with several local fisherman. What a unique and little known corner of our american economy….

Louisiana’s commercial fishing industry produces 25 percent of all the seafood in America. The fisherman in Plaquemines Parish and St. Bernard’s Parish ALONE create over $400 million a year in taxable revenue. It was not until traveling into their very backyards (or, back “waters”) that we began to realize the enormity of their loss. The entire fishing industry here has been COMPLETELY compromised by hurricane Katrina.

UPDATE

As we reach deeper into communities with relief supplies and set up
distribution sites it is hard to overcome our frustration. Americans
have become refugees in their own towns. People are suffering due to the lack of communication, as well as the cold weather.
With the uplifting support of the folks at The North Face, we remain
positive and work in conjunction with many agencies and organizations to
effectively obtain the resources we need to accomplish our goals
on the ground. CAN-DO’s main focus includes: Read more
